My daughters 1st dress.... [View all]

I am very proud of my 2 daughters...I was somewhat shocked when I was asked if I would buy a dress by my oldest. She's never been much for dresses and I doubt she's had any since she was a toddler. It was for her graduation-I of course agreed & we found a great old fashioned style black lace dress on sale. And my wife's Mom's vintage black Angora sweater finished the "look". Very proud indeed & looking forward to tonight's graduation...


The oldest is just today graduating Reynolds Middle school. She is due to transfer to Reynolds High school-the scene of our latest national tragedy/disgrace. The school shooting.

And all separate issues & angst aside-Thanks you fucking asshat Republicans for another job well done.....

My tragedy is minor but very real. The ongoing education of my daughters will forever hold the knowledge they are facing this tragedy on an ongoing basis with no cure or even the attempt at an honest discussion.

All because greedy fucking asshats want us to be angry at each other & have easy access to guns.
What could possibly go wrong

It will not get better as long as they are given any validity-frankly it boggles the sanity of anyone subjected to the Republican "logic". Why they are not laughed at & mocked openly is beyond me.

So-Thanks Republicans-you fucked America long & hard. The results are predictable and for me now-Far too close to home.

I'll give them extra hugs for sure, and do my best to assure them they have very good teachers & staff looking out for them. And I know I have to make the best of it. This is OUR town-we love it here.
